The Bryan brothers debuted as a doubles team at the US Open in 1995 and went on to make 23 consecutive New York appearances, winning five titles. Mike lifted the US Open trophy for a sixth time in September, but it came with Jack Sock as his partner, as Bob missed the second half of 2018 with a hip injury.
Now, with Bob back on the court after an ahead-of-schedule rehab process, the most successful doubles pair in tennis history is reunited for 2019.
They will hope to pick up where they left off in the first five months of 2018, when they won a pair of Masters 1000 titles (Miami, Monte Carlo), reached the Australian Open semifinals and contested another two Masters finals, including the championship match in Madrid, during which Bob was forced to retire.
The ATP Tour went behind the scenes with the duo to provide an insider's account of Bob's comeback and the pair's offseason, both on and off the court, as they prepared for 2019. The 15-minute video can be viewed on YouTube.
